Two programs have been established at Hendrick Home for Children to help address needs of more than 1.4 million children in Texas who are in want of a secure home environment: Basic Care and Family Care. Basic Care provides long-term and sometimes permanent placement for children as young as age 5. Family Care is a program designed to help single parents stay with their children in an efficient Hendrick Home suite as they work toward a major goal that leads to family stability and financial independence.
Since 1939, Hendrick Home for Children has been “building the future” of children, who in many cases, had lived their early lives in poverty, abuse and neglect. Our children “build their futures” as most children do, through their involvement in school, church, football, cheerleading, boy scouts, and many other community activities. Many lives have been rebuilt at Hendrick Home since its opening.
Now, the cherished main building needs rebuilding herself.
Hendrick Home for Children has embarked on a $25 Million project that includes rebuilding the main building and adding two cottages for children. The Rebuilding of the two-story main building will allow for up-to-code amenities,
more space, better use of that space and drastically more cost-effective utilities. It will include 12 family care suites, four college apartments for children after high school graduation, a grand dining hall, kitchen, activities rooms, elevators, board room, two supervisor apartments and administrative offices.
When completed, the main building will retain the dignity of the building Mr. and Mrs. T.G. Hendrick built in 1939. The overall square footage will be slightly larger than its majestic predecessor so it can accommodate a heritage display that will feature the providential events in the life of the Hendricks and the Home.
“ The main building is tired and worn out, and it no longer matches the function of what we do in our mission. Its more expensive to build for children because of the building codes and we are building it to last 100 years.” - David Miller, HHC President and CEO
The campaign also includes:
Building two 8,500 square foot cottages, bringing the campus total to six. Renovation of the Sayler and Zuber cottages, building a larger maintenance building and building a multi-unit storage building.
